The Paul Smart book you are looking for is actually titled, "The Illustrated
Encyclopedia of the Butterfly World"

Originally published by Salamander Books Limited, London, 1975.

Also published by Crescent Books, New York, 1989, ISBN 0-517-679728

If you can't find it I suggest you place a classified ad on this site:

'A place to buy, sell, trade entomological specimens and related items.'

or this site:

Entomology Discussion Groups

For the entomological supplies you are looking for, my favorite company is
http://www.bioqup.com. They also may be able to locate that book for you.
Ask for Chris. Tell him I sent ya.

Good luck!
